The Eagle Scout Bike Park
Organized by: Ryson Phares
As an Eagle Scout candidate I am required to perform a project that will have a lasting benefit on the community. I love to bike and have chosen a bike park as my project. The project consists of developing a piece of land located on the Shining Sea Bike Path on Cape Cod Massachusetts. The development will include Memorial benches, bike racks and a designated bike path thru the park. The town of Falmouth has drawn up a plan that was discarded because of the $250,000 cost. I will carry on with an abbreviated version. My hope is that future Eagle scouts can add to the design of this park every year. I have already passed various boards that include the conservation committee and board of selectman. My goal is to raise $10000 dollars for the initial build out. I have the support of the community, the bikeways committee and the town. If 10000 people donated $1 each, I could buy the four benches that I need as well as 2 bike racks and the product needed for the path. I will supply the labor force through volunteers and other scouts. Please help me if you can. Thank you.
